    Hey there,

    Does anyone know of a place that is NPIP certified, does Mereck vaccines, and has day old Ayam Cemanis to ship at this time of year? I know it’s a long shot. I saw Feather Lovers Farms does, but then read all sorts of bad reviews on here. Thanks in advance for any leads!

    Not of hand for this time of the year. If you have not, I should highly recommend researching the breed af there are a lot of culls being sold for the price off breeding quality. Even GFF stock is sub par. Just looking at the bird they choose to use on their banner is enough to not purchase from them.
    (There's a lot of red/burgundy in the wattles & comb. Should be solid black, not just dark)
    I do own the breed by the way, these are opinions based on my own research & experiences.

    Cackle has them and they are way overpriced there. I got mine off of eBay from Shady Grove Farm. Turned out to be high quality from there but other sellers on eBay I got some really crappy birds.

    Whoa I never noticed those mulberry looking wattles on greenfire’s website. Crazy.
    After thinking about it a bit more and doing some more research today I think I’m going to hold off on getting more. I have one little Ayam Cemani that I got from a local breeder and she would definitely be considered a cull in a breeding program. The tip of her beak is white and I don’t feel she’s as dark as she could be, but we will see as she grows up. I don’t plan on breeding her anyways.
    Now I’m looking at Mosaics...maybe in the spring. :)

    Glad to hear you had a good experience on eBay! That’s awesome.
